Group Spotlight: Steampunk Couture

You never know what you'll find when you browse through Polyvore. Imaginations run wild, inspiring creativity in every corner. There are lots of hidden gems in Polyvore groups...and this is where we'll be highlighting them.

Today's Group Spotlight is on Steampunk couture, moderated by VisionINblack. This group encourages members to create art and fashion using elements of steampunk. If you're not familiar, steampunk refers to a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s (thank you Wikipedia!) Think old fashioned clocks, gears, monocles, bolts, mechanical things, Victorian-era vests and dresses, lace up boots and old top hats.

Inspired by what you see? Join the Steampunk couture group. There's a cool contest running for the best steampunk top hat right now, too!
